Published Add your comment

Spartak Moscow midfielder Radoslav Kovac claims he is close to securing a move to West Ham.

The Czech Republic international and Brazilian Mozart were left out of Spartak's pre-season training camp in Turkey to "resolve questions about their future careers", according to the Russian club's website.

Kovac told Russian newspaper Sovietsky Sport: "Everything was sorted out on Wednesday afternoon."

He added: "Recently my agent has been working actively and a few firm options immediately presented themselves.

"I didn't imagine that the training session ahead of the training camp in Turkey would be my last for Spartak.

"I've not even had chance to say goodbye to the lads.

"The call came in and I was told that everything was decided. Spartak are preparing the documents. A flight to London is booked and I'm flying there on Thursday."

"Everyone I asked for advice said that it was the right time. The examples of (Nemanja) Vidic and (Roman) Pavlyuchenko are an inspiration.

"They both left Spartak for England and it's working out well for them."
